NORWICH VEGAN’S SUMMER FAYRE 2018 // Out

Last year the ‘Norwich Vegan’s’ Community organised a fantastic fayre around the Forum, which I wrote about here, so I was so excited when they announced another was coming this year. This year, they returned with some old favourites plus newbies, and a good mix of food (my personal highlight of course), beauty stands, eco products and more.

Vausage (Mum and I halved) w/ onion, mushroom gherkins + sweetcorn

Namaste India (2 restaurants in Norwich)

Tofurei (‘sausages’ roll fresh from their shop down the road)

The fayre was hosted at the Forum, right in the heart of the city and was buzzing with people I imagine who planned to go there, and people who stumbled across it on their Sunday strolls.

NORWICH VEGAN FESTIVAL & GELATO // Life 

Returning for a second year, the Shena Louise organised amother event which bought together tonnes of vegan food stalls, beauty products, charity stalls, animal welfare, clothes and more as well as hundreds of people to enjoy it.

  

Debs pantry – I tried the carrot cake and sticky toffee, the latter of which was delicious with chunks of date and a toffee glaze. 
 
Munchy seeds – available in many shops all over the country and in 8 flavours – honey, chilli, omega (think soy sauce), sesame, choccy apricot, super berry, savoury crunch and choccy ginger. These are great to eat on their own, in smoothies, cereal, salads, pasta, and my favourite way; with yogurt and frozen berries. 
 Rude veganz clothing  

 Biscotti – definitely serve with a coffee or tea as they are pretty hard on their own.   
 
  

   
  Vegan cakery 
   

Indian street food salads   

 
  
Two six nine catering – their bakewell slice was as delicious as any ‘non vegan’ I’ve tried, moist almond sponge, sweet jam and crisp pastry.  

  

Gourmet nut butters – my favourite flavour was banana bread and vanilla espresso, but others included white chocolate raspberry, cocoa and carrot cake.
  
  

 Food cycle – giving advice for making the most out of your food ‘waste’, cheap recipe ideas and they even made a delicious vegetable curry. 
Naked greenz – wheat grass
Boudicca brewery – vegan Norfolk ale 
My mother and I followed the fayre with a lovely walk around the city in the sun, stumbling across a little unique gift shop, and finishing in the new gelato shop. I had the dairy free strawberry sorbet, which I have to say was amazing, not watery or icy and you could taste the real fruit
